Barefoot by the Sea: Tea Collection Review AND $50 gift certificate giveaway!

Tea Collection Review AND $50 gift certificate giveaway!

I've been SO excited to share this fabulous review and giveaway!  Let me start by saying, if you don't like soft, pretty, hip and comfortable designer children's clothing, you can stop reading.  However, if you do....read on!

This is all about TEA COLLECTION!   Last Fall, my Mom purchased a set for Riley's back to school clothes from this company and we were thrilled by the high quality and opportunity to mix-and-match pieces from the set.  Cotton girls dresses, long tunics, bootleg pants and leggings were included in the first five piece set we purchased.  The individual pieces are unique and adorable and they've held their quality far beyond the Fall! We love the comfort and versitility of this set.  So, when Tea contacted me about doing a review, how could I say no!?

A little bit about the company:  Back in 2002, Tea  started in San Fransisco with three pima cotton sweaters....fast forward to 2011 and now they offer two full assortments, Tea Collection and Daily Tea, available in more than 400 stores and in major retailers including Nordstrom and Saks.  Tea Collection is a little more dressy and Daily Tea is perfect for day to day wear and casual outings.  With items inspired by global cultures, I love the fact that these items are different - we aren't trying to look to grown up, these pieces are completely pretty and age appropriate!

We were lucky to receive four pieces to sample. 
First, the etched print ruffle dress was a huge hit with Riley, age 6.  This deep purple dress has little etchings all over and will be perfect for casual outings.  We paired it with leggings and loved the pretty and unique look!

We also received the Painters Plaid Tunic, inspired by sketches in Barcelona museums.  This top is steel gray and ivory gingham and beautiful paired with cargos.  This comfortable option will be a "go to" Spring shirt. 

For Miss Syndey, age 2, we received the Nouveau Leaf Smock Dress.  What I love most about this?  It's different than anything I could find in the stores at the mall.  Pretty details including the smocking and beautiful leaf print, make it a stand out.  In size 2, the fit was generous and comfy.  We paired it with leggings!
We also received the Dragonfly Banded Dress (can you say hello new wardrobe?).  This is my favorite.  Super soft, easy and adorable.  Love the orange and pink, super cute and unique.  I see a Summer full of this dress, a new staple.  And of course, Sydney loved being adorned with dragonflies! 


Of course, let's not forget.  Tea also carries a full line of boy's clothing, baby clothing and yes, for women as well! 

We really loved the samples we were sent from Tea Collection. The new spring line is all about casual and cute and the items we tried defined that to a tee! All of the items fit perfectly and I love that they are so easy to care for...we very rarely do anything that isn't machine washable:)



Tea Collection carries a wide selection of quality children's clothing. If you're looking to add to your kiddo's spring wardrobe, you should definitely check out the stylish, casual and adorable fashions at Tea Collection!  AND!  Tea Collection has been generous enough to offer Barefoot by the Sea readers a chance at winning a $50 gift certificate!

  2. Seeing as I don't have kids yet, I took a look at the women's clothing. I love the modernista tee -- stylish and flattering without being skin tight! Love it :)

  3. I love, love Tea Collection and we have many of the new new spring pieces for my daughter (really love the hoodie, gypsy pants, wrap dresses, boatbeck dresses)...but just saw the new line that was released in time for Easter and definitely would want to buy the Modernisme Ruffle Dress for my daugther if I was the lucky winner! Love your blog and will continue to follow it...I already "like" Tea Collection on FB! Thanks for posting this contest! Debbie
